Samsung’s upcoming Phablet release is coming near, as per the current leaks and rumors. According to confirmed news, Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is going to release on August 23, in New York. They have already sent invitations to the press for the unpacked event.
After the last year’s Note 7 mishap, Samsung has learned a lot and even encouraged with the mounting S8, S8 plus sales worldwide. We can say that Note 8 will be the successor to Note 5 owners, who waited for two years to own a phablet that wont burn or burst.
Popular phone leaker Evan Blass tweeted a full photo of the Note 8 from the front. The photo seems to be the official render of the phone which looks like S8.
The picture shows the render of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 in Midnight black color. The phone looks very similar to S8, obviously with a larger screen and most probably same aspect ratio. We can expect the phone to be made of the same hardware as that of S8, S8+: Snapdragon 835 processor or Exynos 8895 processor and 4GB of RAM.
In the larger picture above, we can see the dual rear camera setup in the back. So, Samsung Note 8 will be the first phone from Samsung to have dual rear camera. The dual camera setup will definitely have an enhanced image capturing experience with optical zoom, bokeh pictures and refocusing feature. It is still doubtful if they will save this feature for Samsung Galaxy S9. The previously rumored fingerprint scanner in the back, along side of the dual camera already had critics word that will invite people putting their fingers in the camera instead of the scanner.
